Yes...winners.

As it is, I'm seeing guys creaming their pants and cooning for the camera over weights that some fat 16yo Chinese boy has hit in the warm-up room at some provincial championship affair. The only thing I can figure out between the coonery and the interviews and the grandstanding is that this is some poor man's version of Chael Sonnen's schtick. The difference is that Chael beats the fuck out of the world's toughest men on occasion. Jon North is regularly outlifted by the world's strongest women. But...PINK PILLS...PINK PILLS.

I think he needs a little white pills. Alprazolam...loads of them..and a 5th of whiskey, and a warm bathtub to slit his wrists in.

Shankle looks like someone who would sell you Meth. North looks like the frontman to some shit ass straight edge metalcore band. Fuck both of these motherfuckers.

I always liked watching Shankle lift--no fuss and always got the sense that whatever emotion was on display wasn't a manufacture. Seems to legitimately be a hard man. I'd like for him to get a lot of gone between himself and North but hey.

Shankle, whatever his personal foibles, doesn't come across on video as anything but hugely strong and motivated. I'm not sure what you're supposed to lift drug free as an American with only white pills and no pink ones but Donnie is impressive.

Moser was arrested at the '08 trials. He and a buddy stuck up his steroid/cocaine dealer; armed robbery in the middle of the night, the dealer got hurt and pointed the finger right away. Musa is strong as shit. He lifted in prison using the metal weights and lowered the bar like it was 1959. He only had 315 pounds of weights and just did reps in everything.

Shankle was a marine in Baghdad, and that gets lots of slack from me for how he can behave. He should be a little crazy. But not only was he drunk, violent, and naked, he assaulted some residents of the USOTC when he was out there.

I heard that North was kicked out because he didn't train hard enough. As for how he does in competitions, North's nuthuggers are going away. He never was much in national or International meets, always losing to teenagers or Phil Sabatini. North never made a world team, and while I didn't either, I never posted vids of me making national records in training. North hit his wife at the Arnold a few years back as he walked off the platform, and he was clearly abusive of the folks at this meet.

But North is a typical abuser. He attacks those he thinks he can bully, and he will resort to physical violence to reinforce his own personality. He wouldn't have gotten away with that shot at one of my meets or in my gym. I think the USAW will make an example, albeit weak, of his behavior. The new CEO knows that the future of weightlifting isn't North and his assholes, but the men and women who have kids getting involved. Seeing a National Medalist scream obscenities at his wife and other female lifters isn't good for the sport. And, while the new CEO may be corrupt, he knows that the sport needs a public face, and that North's attitude is, for many, a public face of weightlifting which cannot be endorsed. I think North will be suspended or publicly warned, but the suspension won't keep him away from the American Open.

Bullshit. Being a Vet of any sort is no excuse to act like a fucking toolbag. I'm sure there are other senior guys on the forum that would agree. For every guy that goes batshit crazy there are a thousand that deal with positively.

Chinaman, Donnie is not the issue here...


Donnie seems like a fine lad...besides being a bit of a wild card when drunk and while chemically altered,...but hey...who among us?

your math looks to be way off.

from oct 2012:
The Department of Veterans Affairs has quietly released a new report on post-traumatic stress disorder, showing that since 9/11, nearly 30 percent of the 834,463 Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans treated at V.A. hospitals and clinics have been diagnosed with PTSD.
